​JWhy is this project being done?

As part of the City's effort to maintain and improve its municipal water distribution system, we will transfer water services on Stadium Service Drive from an existing 6" water main to a new 8" water main.  This work will be performed to eliminate the existing 6" water main due to its age and increasing frequency of water main breaks and to improve the water quality.  This project is part of the City's budgeted expenditures and will be performed at no direct cost to nearby property owners. 

What does this project include?

The work includes installation of a new 8" water main, water distribution system upgrades, repaving the project area (see map below).

Possible Impact to residents and/or businesses

During the design phase of this project, public input will help the project team understand the concerns and interests of adjacent property owners.  In some areas, temporary parking restrictions may be in place during construction. The project team will work with individual property owners to minimize impacts to the extent possible.

During the construction phase, Stadium Service Drive will be closed to through traffic: 

  • Driveway access for local traffic will be maintained.
  • Garbage collection and mail delivery will be maintained throughout the project.
  • Water service will be maintained during construction, except for brief periods when the new water main is tied in to the existing main, and when services are transferred to the new main. Disruptions will be limited, and residents will be informed in advance.
  • General noise and dust from equipment, particularly during site excavation

Funding source

The project is being paid for through city water system funds.
